Abstract
Kiwivision II is a hybrid vision architecture under development at the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) in Auckland, New Zealand. It consists of a reconfigurable network of transputers interfaced to a commercially available family of pipeline processing modules. Images can be loaded directly from the pipeline processor bus into image/data stores which are memory-mapped into the transputer network. The array topology is variable, can be dynamically reconfigured and can be expanded with the addition of extra transputer processing modules. This paper describes the parallel implementation of several useful vision algorithms on Kiwivision II, and demonstrates the usefulness of its hybrid structure.
